By what means would it be possible to extract/download a text file of an existing OCR'd newspaper I have uploaded, to improve (as in completely retype important articles) and upload to improve the overall quality of certain texts?

If this is not possible, is there a certain step that I'm somehow skipping before I upload the newspaper to the internet archives, that I can go back to in order to rewrite the newspaper before the OCR takes place on the internet archives.

I realize this second option would require me to run the Acrobat OCR, but I'm worried even if I rewrite the article, the Internet Archive OCR will revert back to the original crapped up version.

Okay so I've searched past topics and read that this is possible, however I'm unsure of where I upload the corrected OCR, via edit item>Edit Files>Upload new file, or as a completely new item entirely--and link the new file via item review.

The latter way troubles me, as many people I feel overlook the reviews on the items, however, I'm unsure if I follow the first option, what I have to delete, in order so the corrected .txt file is used.
